Admission and Selection


Admission to the Radiologist Assistant (RA) program requires:

*If you do not have your bachelor's degree and are looking to complete your degree, please call the School of Radiologic Sciences at 801.626.6057 for opportunities to complete your degree.


Preceptor Requirements

  • It is also the student's responsibility to identify a preceptor who will work with them during the program. A signed agreement form from a clinical-practice site and preceptor (radiologist/physician) will need to be submitted with the online application.  Applications may be submitted without the agreement form identifying the preceptor and clinical site for conditional acceptance.  However, preceptor and clinical site must be identified by July 1, 2023 or enrollment will be deferred until Fall 2024.  
  • Due to California state law, we cannot accept Radiologist Assistant applicants who have clinical sites in California.
